Monster N-Tune Headphones Review & Giveaway

October 2, 2013

For years I've just used the little in-ear headphones because they were the best quality I could get (without spending a ton). Then recently, I started seeing more and more people wearing larger headphones that looked a lot more like what my husband wears when he plays guitar so I can't hear it. After seeing a good dozen runners at the gym wearing these headphones I seriously became curious! As you can guess, when BlogHer approached me to review a pair of Monster Headphones I was more than happy.
When they showed up at my doorstep in purple... I was beside myself! I love them. Love them! If they were a friend I would take them out for frozen yogurt, love them. Now let's get into why I love these babies so much.
Comfort & Sound Quality - We both like to watch shows on our computers and on our tablets. Sometimes we do it at the same time, the only issue is that I can hear what he is watching with my in-ear headphones. Y'all, I couldn't hear anything else in the room at all! The second thing I noticed, is that my ears never began to hurt from wearing these headphones. You know what I mean about the inside of your ears hurting with in-ear headphones. These are so comfortable I could probably sleep in them, and we all know how I am about my sleep. The sound though, it blew me away. Monster uses N-Tune HD and I kid you not, it sounded like I was in a mini movie theater with the Monster Headphones on. The sound quality is the best I've ever had in a pair of headphones. Passive Noise Isolation - Several times this past weekend Jeremy walked through the bedroom (I went into TV series marathon mode after putting my headphones on.) and had to repeat himself after I removed the headphones, because I couldn't hear him. N-Tune HD's noise isolation can not be beat. If you know someone who flies frequently I highly suggest buying these headphones for them for Christmas. I literally sat in the living room during the football game with my Monster headphones on just to see if I could hear it. Barely, I could barely hear it. Once I turned on my T.V. show though, I couldn't hear anything that wasn't coming straight through my headphones.
Durability - I tend to tear things up, not that I want to, but myself and headphones just don't get alone well. Honestly though, most cords aren't made well. All I have to do it unplug it from the elliptical at the gym a few times and I've ripped the wires out. So the past few days I put Monster to the test, I plugged them into the headphone wire eating elliptical I run on ever morning. Like I suspected, the cord is made so well that they held up to what otherwise would be certain headphone death. Seriously, as soon as your touch a Monster headphone cord you'll notice it's not like others you've used. Plus I haven't been able to tangle it up like I typically do, that alone makes it a winner. Unlike every pair of headphones I owned in the 90's, you don't have to worry that someone with a large head will break them. Monster headphones are built to be super durable, you can even twist them around without breaking. Gosh I love technology. Even if I don't understand it half the time. ControlTalk Universal - In-line mic with controls for Android, tablets, & other devices. I haven't used this much, but I have loved the button attached to the cord that allows you to pause and play your music or video.

Do you want to know something else I love? 

There are ports on both sides of the headphone that allows you to choose which side you want to plug in your cord. 

Not that important when purchasing, but I really liked the feature. 

Here's something else to think of, with the holidays coming up this would be a great gift for anyone you know who uses headphones often. Whether they enjoy listening to music, or watching movies on their computer or tablet, the quality & price of Monster headphones makes this a great gift.
